September Event in Omaha to Support Wounded Warriors
Omaha Cell Phone Company to Host “Cell Phone Throwing” Contest to Raise funds for Wounded Warriors
First Aid Cellular, Owned by Air Force Veteran Jeffrey Wharton plans to raise funds to support the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) to assist service members who have been injured in the line of duty by hosting the Inaugural Cell Phone Throwing Contest in Omaha, NE on September 19th, 2012.
All proceeds generated from the Cell Phone Throwing Contest will be donated to the WWP. Over 47,000 servicemen and women have been injured in recent military conflicts and an estimated 400,000 service members may live with invisible wounds of war, including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
The Cell Phone Throwing Contest will take place at the University of Nebraska Omaha Campus. Contestants donate $5 to throw a phone in the contest. The $5 donations will earn each contestant a $5 First Aid Cellular store gift card. Additional donations to WWP will be accepted at the event.
First Aid Cellular is a green company that recycles unused electronics, computers and cell phones. The green company was founded by Jeff’s father Max Wharton (US Army Ret.)
